So, I didn’t hear from many on you on my question regarding posting EVERY DAY.  Perhaps I should interpret your silence as polite pleading not to innundate you with posts. 

Clearly, I’m ignoring this for now.  The first image is my 365 creation from yesterday.  It’s so much better to photograph with sunlight.

Thumbs up?  Down?  No comment?  I am so looking forward to my classes, as I feel that I am fumbling around with a lot of these printmaking materials.  Also, feedback from my teacher/classmates will be good (or OTHERS…hint..hint).
